The importance of partners is increasing
– Traditionally, price has been the major competitive factor for subcontractor networks, and this certainly continues to be true today. Nevertheless, partnership is becoming more important in reshaping industry as the functionality of network relationships and business value creation are based on trust and sharing information. Few companies are able to reach full business efficiency and benefits on their own. A subcontracting network that efficiently utilises digitalisation may be one of the foundations of reshaping industry’s competitive edge, state Managing Director Päivi Myllykangas from Tredea Oy and Senior Partner Kaija Pöysti from InsoSome Oy.
